Tutorial: Sweet Treats Milk Carton

Chrissie is sharing a sweet little mini milk carton today featuring the Ultimate Tool, the Sweet Treats CD Rom, and placed them on the Sweet Treats embossing board.  I simply scored the lines and then cut the box out.  The Ultimate Tool comes with a scoring tool and a knife.


She used two different patterned papers and cut the bottom off of the pink and the top off of the green to create the two-toned box.  She also cut small slits at the bottom of the pink, so the top would slide onto the bottom for an easy open gift package.



Tip: Use a SUPER strong glue like Collal Tacky Glue for boxes and other projects like this.  Even if the box will be holding something light weight, you don't want it falling apart on the recipient (especially when there is a top and bottom being put on and taken off a few times!)


For the tag, she cut a doily from the Die'Sire Chantilly Lace Die set and fussy cut out a tag from a sheet printed from the Sweet Treats CD-ROM.  She attached them and added some Shimmer Sparkle Spray for some added bling. 


Next, she added the "sweet" tag, a little ribbon and some twine using Collal Tacky Glue. 



Using The Ultimate Tool bow maker pegs, she made a bow for the top of the box.




Here is the top of the completed box!

Tutorial: Rainbow Background


Vera Yates made this wonderful Bebunni card with a rainbow background, and shared her step-by-step process so you could make one too! Supplies: Directions:


Step 1: Emboss a piece of cardstock with Embossalicious ‘Chevron’ folder. Then using sponge add color to the embossed cardstock.


Step 2: Continue to add various colors as desired.


Step 3: Adhere the coloured embossed cardstock to the card base.


Step 4: Stamp image, color the flower (using Spectrum Noir pencils: 019, 023, 025, 031, 044, 046) and fussy cut the image.


Step 5: Adhere the fussy cut piece to the card. For added interest, don’t add any adhesive to the ear.
Fold it slightly forward for 3D effect.
